This book examines the quest for/failure of Utopia across a range of contemporary American/transnational fictions in relation to terror and globalization through authors such as Susan Choi, André Dubus, Dalia Sofer, and John Updike. While recent critical thinkers have reengaged with Utopia, the possibility of terror — whether state or non-state, external or homegrown — shadows Utopian imaginings. Terror and Utopia are linked in fiction through the exploration of the commodification of affect, a phenomenon of a globalized world in which feelings are managed, homogenized across cultures, exaggerated, or expunged according to a dominant model. Narrative approaches to the terrorist offer a means to investigate the ways in which fiction can resist commodification of affect, and maintain a reasoned but imaginative vision of possibilities for human community. Newman explores topics such as the first American bestseller with a Muslim protagonist, the links between writer and terrorist, the work of Iranian-Jewish Americans, and the relation of race and religion to Utopian thought.

British Romanticism and the Jews explores the mutual influences exerted by the British-Christian and British-Jewish communities on each other during the period between the Enlightenment and Victorianism. The essays in the volume demonstrate how the texts produced by the Jewish Enlightenment provided a significant resource for romantic intellectual revisionism, in much the same way that British romanticism provided the cultural basis through which the British-Jewish community was able to negotiate between the competing obligations to ethnicity and nationalism.

In welcher Wirklichkeit leben wir? Ein Junge ertrinkt, verzweifelt und verlassen in seinen letzten Minuten. Er stirbt. Dann erwacht er, nackt, verletzt und durstig, aber lebendig. Wie kann das sein? Und an was für einem seltsamen, verlassenen Ort befindet er sich? Während er versucht zu verstehen, was mit ihm geschehen ist, regt sich Hoffnung bei dem Jungen. Ist das vielleicht doch noch nicht das Ende? Bietet dieses Leben vielleicht doch mehr als das?

By kind request. It is a year since the well-received book Progressive Rock 2. Boundary Lines. Journalist Stefano Orlando Puracchio is back with his new book Progressive Rock 3 By Kind Request. The title alones indicates a great response and an awaited comeback. Thanks to the excellent feedback from readers and specialised journalists, but also thanks to the increasingly firm certainty of the reasons of Self-Publishing, as well as the need to draw conclusions after two volumes of interviews and reflections, Puracchio has decided to tackle the phenomenon of progressive once again, with his diverse and stimulating approach. More than an analytical essay or a scientific treatise, Puracchio envisages his work yet again as a sort of “jumble” of interviews, thematic essays and reflections on the past, present and future of prog-rock.

The story of Czech theatre in the twentieth century involves generations of mesmerizing players and memorable productions. Beyond these artistic considerations, however, lies a larger story: a theatre that has resonated with the intense concerns of its audiences acquires a significance and a force beyond anything created by striking individual talents or random stage hits. Amid the variety of performances during the past hundred years, that basic and provocative reality has been repeatedly demonstrated, as Jarka Burian reveals in his extraordinary history of the dramatic world of Czech theatre. Following a brief historical background, Burian provides a chronological series of perspectives and observations on the evolving nature of Czech theatre productions during this century in relation to their similarly evolving social and political contexts. Once Czechoslovak independence was achieved in 1918, a repeated interplay of theatre with political realities became the norm, sometimes stifling the creative urge but often producing even greater artistry. When playwright Václav Havel became president in 1990, this was but the latest and most celebrated example of the vital engagement between stage and society that has been a repeated condition of Czech theatre for the past two hundred years. In Jarka Burian's skillful hands, Modern Czech Theatre becomes an extremely important touchstone for understanding the history of modern theatre within western culture.
